Subject Re: Hadoop Distributed Virtualisation

There is a place for virtualization. If you can justify the overhead
for hands free network management. If your systems really have enough
power they can run hadoop and something else. If you need to run
multiple truly isolated versions of hadoop (selling some type of
hadoop grid services?)

If you are working on the type of application that requires a system
like hadoop, the implication is that you have a large network of
physical hardware and you need all the power you can get. It is
counter intuitive to start splitting up hosts into virtual machines,
however every application is different and it may make sense.
